At Home with Elaine Griffin

I’ve been wanting to feature ELAINE GRIFFIN on Zavvi Rodaine for some time now, so when I finally read the May issue of Elle Decor I was thrilled to see Elaine’s Harlem brownstone featured. You are going to love Elaine’s mix of high and low to create a warm and welcoming home for her husband, Michael McGarry, who she met through online dating. You’ll have to pick up the issue of Elle Decor to see how things progressed for those two, it’s a really cute story.

Elaine has been a prominent New York interior designer for over a decade and her work has been featured in O at Home and the New York Times. In her book, Design Rules, Elaine shares decorating and styling tips emphasizing her design credo that “it’s pretentious to decorate a home based solely on [designer] names.”
